Bing Student Earth Day Photo Contest finalists

Edit: Voting date has been extended from 4/19 to 4/20 at 12:00 p.m. PT and winners will now be announced on 4/21 at 9:00 a.m. PT.

The 12 finalists in the student Earth Day Photo Contest have been chosen out of a whopping total of 17,000 entries! You can view them and vote at


Vote for your favorite photo now and you can help a school project of your choice through Bing is giving out GivingCards worth $5.00 each to the first 20,000 people who vote each day from April 13 to April 19.

That means that every day from April 13th to April 19th you have another opportunity to vote in the contest and receive an additional GivingCard.

This offer is limited to one GivingCard per day per user from 4/13/10 – 4/19/10.  GivingCards may only be used at and expire on 5/20/10. Unlike the contest, voting is not limited to US residents, nor is winning a DonorsChoose GivingCard. As you can see in the screenshot above (click the image to enlarge), I was amongst the first 20,000 voters today ;) Enjoy the giving!

Anyways, back to the contest: Every finalist will win prizes for themselves and their schools and the grand prize winner will also get their photo displayed on the Bing homepage on Earth Day, April 22.
